NH House Republicn Alliance - NH takes another step to protecting unborn children 

House Republican Majority Caucus (HRMC) comments passage of SB40
The House Republican Majority Caucus released a statement today on the passage of SB40. As amended, this is a bill that would allow justice to be served in the death of an unborn child.  The passage of SB40 as amended brings the bill in line with the house bill  passed earlier this year.  The language updates New Hampshire laws to that of 38 other states who have passed similar bills to protect unborn children.
"Bills such as this one have been on the books for years in other states across the nation beginning the early 1970's in California.  Our laws are long outdated in protecting unborn children and this bill brings us into the 21st century for protecting all of our citizens." stated Rep. Leon Rideout- Lancaster.  " The faulty claims from the left have zero foundation in truth.  Keeping our laws antiquated and violating the 14th amendment of equal protection for all people is unacceptable.
With all the new technology we have developed during the past 30 years to understand the life cycle of a preborn child, it's about time we started protecting them and providing justice for the families of New Hampshire's most innocent victims." 

NHDP - Governor Hassan Stands Up For Law Enforcement & Public Safety

NHGOP’s Radical Gun Bill Wildly Out-Of-Step With New Hampshire

Concord, N.H. – After New Hampshire House Republicans passed a radical bill allowing anyone to carry a concealed weapon without a license, New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley thanked Governor Hassan for standing up for law enforcement and public safety.
“Once again, Republicans in the New Hampshire House and Senate have proven that they’re wildly out-of-step with New Hampshire, passing a radical gun bill over the opposition of law enforcement officers and 71% of Granite Staters,” said New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley. “We thank Governor Hassan for taking a strong stand to support law enforcement and public safety by pledging to veto this radical bill.”   
A recent poll from PPP found that 71% of Granite Staters oppose the far-right gun bill, while only 23% support it.
The measure is not only opposed by the New Hampshire Association of Chiefs of Police, but has also been opposed by several prominent New Hampshire Republicans, including then-Senator Ted Gatsas, who voted against SB 454, a comparable 2004 bill.
The Concord Monitor also reported that Merrimack County Sheriff Scott Hilliard, a Republican who endorsed Mitt Romney and canoed with Scott Brown, spoke out in favor of keeping the current licensing process. Hilliard said, “The word suitable, it does seem somewhat ambiguous, but it gives some latitude we should respect… The statute for approving them is clear.”

CEI Today: Surveillance reform, Big Labor at the docks, Obama's climate agenda, and more

Libertarian groups press McConnell on surveillance reform
A group of conservative and libertarian groups sent a letter to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on Monday opposing his proposal to reauthorize portions of the Patriot Act without attaching surveillance reform.  

The coalition said avoiding reform would leave Congress “subordinate to the administration’s creative reinterpretation” of the law.  > Read The Hill article



Big Labor at the California docks 

Amid charges of "wage theft," truck drivers from the docks at Los Angeles and Long Beach reportedly walked off the job Monday, unhappy with their status as independent contractors. 


“By twisting terminology, the Teamsters are targeting truckers at California docks for unionization," said CEI labor policy expert Aloysius Hogan. "At the California docks, as at a California recycling plant in a seminal case before the National Labor Relations Board, the Teamsters seek to transform workers into employees. In both cases, Big Labor simply seeks to line their pockets by forcing workers to pay union dues, despite most truckers preferring the greater flexibility and better income opportunity that comes with being independent.”



The Unbearable Lightness of Obama’s *Passion* for Mitigating AGW


President Obama took congressional Republicans to task for blocking his climate agenda. But opposition to climate policy is robustly bipartisan in both chambers of the U.S. Congress. Indeed, if all issues enjoyed the bipartisan support that does opposition to climate change mitigation policy, then no one would ever whine about D.C. being dysfunctional.  > Read more

Washington Examiner: Easy come, easy go

Instead of constantly and unpredictably tinkering with interest rates, money supply, exchange rates, and other variables, central banks should pursue a humbler monetary policy. This would emphasize an honest, stable, and predictable price system that creates a better environment for those private sector engines of growth. Central banks can manipulate economic indicators in the short run, but long-term prosperity doesn't come from monetary policy. It comes from private sector innovation and entrepreneurship." > View the Washington Examiner commentary)




Two experts on the subject  have two different

 opinions, including CEI's Marc Scribner. This NPC Newsmakers news conference is scheduled for Tuesday, May 5, 2015 at 10 a.m. in the club’s Zenger Room, on the 13th Floor of the National Press Building, 529 14th St. NW, Washington DC 20045.
